Herb Order Form 2014.xlsx

2014 Availability
 

                                                                                                            March 14, 2013
To Our Valued Customers:

            Fuel is a major component of our greenhouse operation.  The record cold
 temperatures and the extra high cost of fuel compels us to implement a fuel surcharge
 of 50₵ per flat of flowers, herbs and vegetables.  This will take effect on March 14, 2014.

            If your order was placed on or before March 14th we will waive the surcharge.

            Greenhouse supply orders are not affected, but if we sell out of a product, when we
 restock it may increase the price at that time.

            We regret that we must implement this surcharge.

                                                                                              Thank you,
                                                                                              Harvest Farm of Whately
